How do I add date to photos 400D



hi all,

This is my first thread, as I just bought a EOS 400D today. I have read the user guide & have set the date/time function within the camera but when I take photos & transfer them to PC to print etc, there is no date caption in a corner. Can some one please advise how I turn this on



Welcome :)
I'm not sure its even possible with DSLR's but why would you want the date and time showing on your pictures anyway :confused:

I don't know if you can do that on the 400D actually mate. The date of the photo is stored as part of the actual file (known as the EXIF data), but I don't think you can embed it directly onto a picture .........

As Zone Said .. why? its embedded within the EXIF anyway.. so really no need to have it splashed over your photos..

The 400D doesn't have that functions I'm afraid, but it does store the date/time etc in the file it creates - if you want it printed on the picture you'll have to add it yourself in your picture editor.

Edit: the above posts beat me to it Lol!
